Dear Chris: My name is Cyndy...I have been an adhesion suffer for 10 years...I am 39 years old and have had 21 abdominal surguries for.....many problems not even related to the adhesions....but for the last 10 years I have been looking for an answer to this problem....I am now seeing a doctor at UCLA in california...he just treats the problem with pain meds...I have a 18 year old and a 14 year kids....they have been going through this along with my husband and they just want their mom to be PAIN FREE..I am very ashamed to say last week my 18 year old son got me a wheel chair and we took my 14 daughter to Universal Studios for the first time in her life...she has never gone to Disney land or any amusement park....I am just not able to go do things because I am in Pain all the time.... My husband and I have done alot of homework...on this subject...We found a doctor who is doing alot of work with Barriers....and adhesions...I am alittle afraid....of that because I am not sure of the long term benifits versus the quality of life I have now...I am on Disabilty from work....and very fustrated........ I have been reading all the postings people are writing and decided to write myself....I am so glad that there are others out there like myself I am so,so tired of Doctors saying, "YOU MIGHT HAVE TO JUST LIVE WITH THIS...." I wonder if they (the doctors) have to LIVE every day like we do with severe pain...If the doctors would like to "JUST LEARN TO LIVE WITH IT..." Well I for one am very glad this forum is here and my husband truely enjoyed the one letter from the spouse.....
